CompTIA Women in IT Council

The CompTIA Educational Foundation created a Women in IT Council to empower women with necessary knowledge and skills and to inspire them for successful IT careers. The council elected Susan Krautbauer, business development-Americas, Elcoteq, and Jean Mork Bredeson, general manager, SERVICE 800, as its chair and vice-chair, respectively.

Technical innovation plays a critical role in virtually every sector of the economy. Yet, only 25 percent of professional IT-related occupations in the American 2009 workforce were held by women, down from 36 percent in 1991, according to research from the National Center for Women & IT. In 2008, only 18 percent of computer and information science degrees were awarded to women, down from 37 percent in 1985.
